Question about preset white button

Hi there. Does anyone know if the preset white button, which is set to 3200k is programmable? I've searched the manual and there is nothing about that. On some sony cameras I've used that preset is switchable between 3200k and 5600k. Seems odd to me if it isn't as having a daylight preset is just as important as having a tungsten one.

On the EX3, go to PP SET menu then to the WHITE section and the last item allows you to dial in the value you want for preset white balance.

and you can roll it to wherever you want too (not just indoor outdoor), which comes in awesomly handy, to bad they dont allow it to be adjusted in the direct menu itself, that would be so wonderfull.
